Summary

From the number one New York Times best-selling author of The Witches of East End and The Descendants comes the love story of young Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler.
Albany, New York, 1777.
As battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, servants flutter about, preparing for one of New York society's biggest events: the Schuylers' grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of their fledgling country's founding families and even prouder still of their three daughters - Angelica, with her razor-sharp wit; Peggy, with her dazzling looks; and Eliza, whose beauty and charm rival those of both her sisters, though she'd rather be aiding the colonists' cause than dressing up for some silly ball.
Still, she can barely contain her excitement when she hears of the arrival of one Alexander Hamilton, a mysterious, rakish young colonel and General George Washington's right-hand man. Though Alex has arrived as the bearer of bad news for the Schuylers, he can't believe his luck - as an orphan, and a bastard one at that - to be in such esteemed company. And when Alex and Eliza meet that fateful night, so begins an epic love story that would forever change the course of American history.
In the story of Alex and Eliza, number one New York Times best-selling author Melissa de la Cruz brings to life the romance of young Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler.

Disappointing

I was just so disappointed by this book. Having extensively studied this topic, I was just expecting this book to be... more. But it was slow and dry and boring. The characters are completely different to how they were in history, which I think is the major tragedy of this book and the blatant manipulation of historical events was painful to read.

Alexander Hamilton

This book made that aspect of history more accessible. Pretty much, if you mix history with a little romance, I’m in. I look forward to the sequel!

It was nice

The audiobook was great! It wasn't terrible but it wasn't amazing either. The plotline wasn't great either but the speaker was loud and clear which was good. Good speaker not so good plotline.
